We at the Law Offices of Joel A. Nass, P.C. have extensive experience in handling a wide range of complex child support arrangements. This includes cases involving either one or both parents who are designated by the state as “high-earners”, or self-employed individuals that do not have readily identifiable income.
Child support and health care support may be ordered to be paid by either party and is decided based on a number of criteria. A few of these criteria are listed here:
- Child support guidelines
- The number of children
- How much time the children spend with each parent
- Medical, education, and other expenses
- The earning capacity of each parent
- Medical insurance
Child support is based solely on the best interest of the children and generally lasts until the child turns 18 years old or graduates from high school, whichever occurs later.
The amount of payment does not have to be solely determined by the court, but can be agreed upon by the parents. The court will generally approve the agreement if the agreement is in the best interest of the children.
We at the Law Offices of Joel A. Nass, P.C. are determined to work with you and your family on reaching a fair payment structure. Whether you have been told to pay child support, or are in need of receiving it, we have over 50 years combined experience to get you the best possible result.
